My husband and I went down to Longboat Key on a whim (to escape the NY snow). We chose the Veranda Beach Club by recommendations from friends. We have two little ones (5 and 3), so we needed space, two bedrooms, a kitchen, and washer & dryer in the room. The Veranda had all that and more. We stayed in... More

My family first bought into Veranda Beach Club when it opened in the early 80's, and we've spent our vacations here every year since. Now I take my kids here and we couldn't love it more. The beach is unreal, the location on beautiful, upscale Longboat Key cannot be beat and the local restaurants are amazing. The units are all... More

For the first class prices you pay you will get accommodation that is half renovated as the building is very old. The pictures on the website look great but we checked online and saw some conflicting pictures that looked old and dingy. As of Dec. 2012 the rooms and bathrooms are not renovated. The kitchen and living room were redone.... More

We have traveled to the Veranda numerous times. We absolutely love it. It is a quiet place to relax and enjoy a gorgeous beach. We love the beach attendant who sets up our chairs and umbrella. We also love that the terraces are so large. We spend all of our time on the terrace and the beach. The weather is... More

This is a true famly resort. Yet, it is quiet and peaceful all the time, regardless how many people are out and about or how many kids are in the pool. The whole resort, from the rooms, to the beach area and immaculate. They have a lot of great extras like bikes, Paddle boards, and even sail boats you can... More

This was our first trip to Longboat Key, and we couldn't have asked for a better time. We visited with two other couples for an adults-only stay, but most of the other visitors were large family groups. Arrival was seamless, and we found our unit in tip-top shape. We had the two-story penthouse model (with 3 bedrooms) on the front... More

We have been to Longboat Key many times and we tried other places to stay only twice. We always come back to VBC. It's clean, comfortable, somewhat upscale, has all amenities and is centrally located. We prefer ocean front and the view is awesome. We love this place! Also there is a Publix across and just down the street...handy, handy.... More

We went to Longboat Key at the urging of friends from England who got a bayside place through their time share exchange. We were fortunate enough to get a week on the gulf side at Veranda. It was an incredible time! Our huge balcony faced east, so we had a view of tennis courts, the main thoroughfare, and a large... More

We visited friends staying at Veranda Beach Club for 1 week during June. 2/2 condo has a nice split layout, large balcony, plesant furnishings, plenty of kitchen space for entertaining. Second floor, mid section of the building was quiet & comfortable. Beach is nice, but not sugar white sand such as Anna Maria or Siesta Key. Certainly nice though with... More
